A very special dog

Submitted by EARS volunteer Donna Phillippe of Waco, Texas

This was my first deployment with EARS, and what a wonderful experience! It was so many things: heartbreaking, adventurous, rewarding, all in one! So many animals stole my heart in such a short time.

EARS returns to Arkansas

UAN's Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) is making its second trip to northwestern Arkansas in 2009 -- this time to care for 100 dogs, 5 cats and 2 guinea pigs removed from a puppy mill in Lamar this morning.

Fourteen EARS volunteers have traveled from Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and other parts of Arkansas to care for the rescued animals at a temporary shelter. Distinguished by their red shirts, UAN’s EARS volunteers will feed, water and comfort the dogs; clean cages and assist veterinarians who are providing any necessary medical care.
